Wednesday’s Offerings

Barns Burnt Down

Barns burnt down–

now

I can see the moon

New Best Friends

In this quiet place,

surrounded by forest,

an abundance of new best friends

all smaller than me.

Some hairy,

some with wings,

some curious,

some distant.

All welcoming.

–Senior Samurai

All they want to do is tie the poem to a chair with a rope and torture a confession out of it. They begin beating it with a hose to find out what it really means.”
